Luke James is packing his bags and heading back on the road with Beyoncé. The pop superstar has once again chosen the rising R&B star to open for her on the U.S. and Canadian leg of “The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour.”
Following the European trek, the Grammy-nominated singer will re-join Beyoncé on tour beginning June 29 at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas through August 5 at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, with the exception of Dallas.
James previously toured with Beyoncé on the European leg of her world tour, which included stops in Paris, London, Munich, Milan, Dublin, and Manchester.
“I am so honored and humbled that Beyoncé personally chose me to share the stage with her again,” said James. “Being on tour overseas with Beyoncé was magical! I learned so much from her in Europe. Her artistry, professionalism and work ethic are incomparable. She and Jay-Z gave me great advice about perfecting my live show and connecting with the audience. I am really looking forward to bringing that same energy and performance that I delivered overseas to the U.S. audience.”
Beyoncé welcomed him back on the road. “Luke James is pure talent,” she said. “He is a gifted singer and songwriter. I am excited to have him continue on the tour.”
Fans can catch James performing his singles “I.O.U.” and “I Want You” off his upcoming debut Made to Love, due this fall on N.A.R.S. Records/Island Def Jam.
